I have never properly introduced myself here, so I think it’s time to do it:
My name is Tatiana (or Tanya), I’m 25 years old. I am a professional woodcarving artist with a degree in Applied Fine Arts from the Volga Regional State University in Russia. I specialize in chip carving on basswood and draw my inspiration from my own life, nature, and music. I’ve been carving ever since I visited a woodcarving studio in 2008 and was so struck by the craft that I was inspired to try it for myself. Since then, I’ve created hundreds of original pieces on my own, as well as worked for companies that produce wooden home décor, and have had my work featured in their stores and on their websites. I’m a total introvert, and though I love people, I find that being and working alone energizes me like nothing else, and I spend all my time creating beautiful works to share with the world.

Thank you for reading it!

-- Tatiana, 28 y.o,

Welcome! Your use and understanding of the English language is remarkable. In fact, its probably better than a lot of native English speakers! Could you share some samples of your work. People here are always intrigued at what our counterparts create around the world!

I think the prices listed in your Etsy store are very modest for the quality of your work.

Welcome to the funny farm Tanya. I have seen your past posts here and you are very talented. If you were a lot closer to me, I would ask for lessons on chip carving. My attempts have been lousy. Keep up the great work young lady.

Lovely young lady and lovely carvings!

I will echo what Art Mann says- you should charge more for your artwork, and not give it away!
